Sharks are passionless killers; and one above all - the great white shark. Early in the spring of 1969, a group of divers, three men and a woman, began a 12,000-mile odyssey, determined to film a great white shark. They combed the Indian Ocean off South Africa, Madagascar, and Ceylon; then extended the hunt to Australia.
Thousands of sharks were sighted and photographed, but the great white eluded them until they reached the waters of Dangerous Reef, off the coast of South Australia. This is the story of that hunt, and of the awesome final encounter between man and the world's deadliest, most cold-blooded predator. Written and produced by PETER GABRIEL
Blue Water, White Death includes some of the most smashing man-against-beast footage ever filmed by anyone. anywhere, at any time!

Where the public sets the agenda
We're Getting There....
In the late 60s British Rail axed a 20-mile stretch of railway line through the Peak District. Five years ago the overgrown line was forgotten by all but a few dedicated enthusiasts. Nobody can now remember who first suggested rebuilding the railway, but this seemingly impossible dream fired the imagination of a group of local people who are slowly proving to the sceptics that they have both the expertise and the will to see it through. Ex-train drivers, housewives, accountants, company directors, unemployed musicians, Peak Rail are turning out every week to rebuild and run a railway which everyone said was lost for ever.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
